New Zealand’s first – and only – Jewish comedy, Kid Sister, is back for a second season and its creator and star Simone Nathan couldn’t be happier.

Nathan worked as a writer on Our Flag Means Death and an assistant on Inside Amy Schumer, before penning the scripts for Kid Sister which, while not strictly autobiographical, is firmly based on her experiences growing up in Auckland’s Jewish community.
